Every Sunday once the clock stuck 5:30 pm I'm glued to the tube watching Food Network on Lifestyle Channel. I don't mind the often reruns its still fun and very educational to watch Professional Chefs do their thing on TV.
Ciao America is hosted by Mario Batali, for those who haven't been watching it, through out the show Mario Batali runs around America tasting delicious Italian dishes made by Professionals Chefs as well as by those Authentic Italian Imigrants. He goes shop to shop which are run and owned my Authentic Italian Imigrants, so you can see how the passion for good food runs from many generations. The show is eye popping with ingriedents, fresh and vibrant colored fruits and veggies absolutely beautiful. Its like a Supermarket Heaven!
I actually wasn't a huge fan of Mario Batali before this show. The first few shows that I saw him hosted didn't really appeal to me although they were Italian dishes as well coz I found that the ingredients that he uses weren't that easy to find and are a bit expensive. But as I watch Ciao America I really like the way the show was represented coz its like he's touring the viewers the ins and out of Little Italys in American, oh how I wish we have that here as well in Manila, like we have our beloved China Town. Hmmm....how long should I wait to have a Little Italy of our own...Ohhhh how I wish.... :)
